Free tax preparation available to Nevada County residents

Submitted by Maureen Boyle

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is once again gearing up to provide free tax preparation services and electronic filing of both federal and California tax returns. Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year and work hard to make sure you get every tax credit and deduction you’ve earned. There is no fee and no sales pitch for other services. AARP membership is not required. This service is provided to Nevada County residents of any age at no cost, and if you’re 50 and older and can’t afford a tax preparation service, this service is especially tailored for you.

The Tax-Aide volunteers can prepare most common personal tax returns, including those that have wages, Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits, pensions, annuities or IRA distributions, earned interest, earned income credit, dividends, itemized deductions, tuition, student loan interest and more.
